    I saw that "ESET Smart Security is an integrated security solution including antivirus, anti-spyware, personal firewall and antispam.Public BETA version of ESET Smart Security will be available from April 2nd, 2007."
    What about its firewall? Will you use it or nod32 antivirus only?

    in answer to the question, 2 computers will have the suite. They have been waiting a long time for this.:)

    The Suit looks really promising and I'll definitely try it but I don't need anti-spam or two-way firewall . I prefer stand-alone applications so I'll use the stand alone AV on my computer .

    The Suit may hug my test machine XP Sp1 ;)

    I'll test the suite as well.
    It surely looks promising. The only problem is that this suite has been a real hype fro a year now so the expectations are very high.

    i hope ESET can cope with that

    One of the best advantages of the integrated firewall will be mutual communication with the other modules which might result in a better protection compared to a system with a stand-alone firewall.

    Step by step here
    1. upgrade to V3 AV on my PC
    2. if all ok upgrade wifes PC to V3 AV
    3. if all OK buy Suite licences
    4. install firewall module on my PC and so on.....

    I hope I can take this modular approach:)

    But first of all read all the posts by those gurus who go first:D

    I will use the AV only till October 2007(license).
    I am interested in the Firewall part, still using KPF 2.15 here.
    I like to beta test the Suite after april 2 if that is possible.

    Although I am not interested in the new suite and will not be testing it, I do look forward to the new version of their standalone antivirus program. I have thoroughly enjoyed using NOD32 Antivirus and the XP firewall, it's a great combination in my opinion and has worked extremely well for me.

    I'll definitely give the Suite a try, and will go from here. If it's good at what it does and is lighter on resources than my current (security software) configuration, then I'll probably keep it.

    I run a hardware firewall with a fairly strict rules set. What incentive do I have to run both a software and hardware firewall?

    As for the Antivirus... Looking at the screen shots, it's going to be a change. I wonder how long I'll miss the cute little console screen?

    Ditto. I keep trying software firewalls, but all they do is use resources. Between NOD32 and some smart decisions, that's all I need. :thumb:

    Hopefully, Nod32 AV as we know it will still be available. My area is with corporate networks, so an integrated suite is not suitable. I'm sure that it could be personal or stand-alone systems though.

    I've yet to see a satisfactory anti-spam programme for personal use... :doubt:

    I have: Spamihilator. I really enjoyed it when I had spam. A new Gmail account and smart usage is all it's taken for me to be spam-free.

    I'll express my main worry - nag. I don't want to be constantly reminded that I am running Module A and B but not C. If I choose to use a hardware firewall instead of the firewall module but keep the spam filter active (my wife's email account = spam city), will I be greeted by a nice big red YOUR SYSTEM IS NOT FULLY PROTECTED screen when I pop into the program console?

    it should be a light suite but if you dont like the suite just get version 3.0 antivirus.
    i think they should have a classic interface button because somepeople like the current interface and might not like the new one

    I'm worried about that too - If it's popping up with warnings and crap like that, I'll just use the regular AV and find some other firewall elsewhere.

    Depends... I'm hoping it also has antispyware capabilities as well. Seems to be some conflicting info on that.

    I think AntiSpam has value at the corporate level... but most ISPs have decent antispam technologies. Hopefully the devs focused on malware more than antispam and if there is an antispyware, it works well.
